“Getting Past Your Saul: Surviving in the Second Chair: A Survival Guide for Second Chair Leaders”: an invigorating opus that recognizes the frustrations present in the dutiful role of a subordinate and instills a thought of endurance in overwhelming situations. “Getting Past Your Saul: Surviving in the Second Chair: A Survival Guide for Second Chair Leaders” is the creation of published author, Bishop Gerald A. Williams Jr., a senior pastor of Serenity Church of Valdosta and founder of Adullam Christian Fellowship of Churches.

Bishop Williams Jr. shares, “’Getting Past Your Saul’ is written to provide comfort and guidance to those in the position of the “right-hand man” who feels that their loyalty to their leader and their obligation to God’s call are in conflict. It recognizes the frustrations of serving in a subordinate position and equips the reader with the mind-set and aptitude that they will need to survive and thrive in the worst situations. This book addresses the myth that all people who sit as ‘first chair’ leaders are effective and God’s chosen leaders. By examining the complex relationship between David and Saul, the reader will learn how to respond when the first chair leader begin to see them as a threat, how to survive the attacks of a “first chair” leader, how to see the signs of betrayal, when it is time to walk away, how to embrace God’s call to lead while avoiding the dangers of a mentor-mentee relationship turned toxic, loving your leader in their error, and embracing the call of first chair leadership. Most resources that address the relationship between first and second chair leaders tend to lean positively toward the first chair while leaving second chair leaders with the notion of having to endure spiritual abuse and manipulation. This book will also raise awareness for first chair leaders that may have lost their way. So whether you are a bishop, overseer, pastor, elder, or even sit in a second chair position at your job, this book will help you survive in the second chair.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Bishop Gerald A. Williams Jr.’s new book addresses individuals who fulfill the work of the “second chair” and conveys to them the pivotal virtues of hope and patience that aid in surviving their current position amid its impending toils.

Taking context from the biblical relationship of David and Saul, this book allows readers to learn the correct response of a second chair to the first chair that reflects God’s benevolence in every action employed.
